This study aims to determine whether there are differences in the use of learning strategies used by students enrolled in courses offered in the format of Distance Learning (DL) by gender and age of participants. A total of 402 students responded to a range of learning strategies evaluations-version adapted for distance learning, containing 49 closed items () and an open question. Part of the data collection was conducted online and the other part in person. The results show significant differences on the use of cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies and by gender and showed that female participants are more strategic than male. Significant differences were also noted in the use of cognitive strategies regarding the age variable, with younger participants being less strategic than others. These results provide important educational implications for distance education.
